Help pls! Right AirPods drain in the charging case?

Hello. So since I got my AirPods I noticed that my right airpod doesn't stay 100% while in case and drains to 75% instead. My left one doesn't have a problem and is always 100% when not in use and in the charging case. I used it all day couple of days ago to drain the battery hoping it will get fix, both got fully charged to 100%. now when I was planning to use it i opened the case, it says that left is 100% again but right AirPod is 75%. Is this broken? Why does the right AirPod doesn't stay 100% while in the case and drains? :/

Please make sure there is no dirt, dust or any lint in AirPods case. Wipe the silver contacts at the end of your right AirPod off with a soft cloth.
If this doesn't fix the issue, try unpairing and repairing the AirPods.

I the recommendation by Tartarus doesn't fix the problem, make a Genius Bar appointment with the nearest Apple Store and have them check it out for you.
